The color is a very dark mahoghany, almost like black.
The aroma has tons of deep sweet caramel, bourbon, vanilla, almond, dark fruit, plum, and some woody oak.
The flavor follows with a punch of sweet juicy plum, raisin, prune, almost like a candy. Then there’s vanilla, caramel, oak, bourbon. It’s almost like biting into a caramel plum candy that just explodes with deep rich sweet flavors.
The mouthfeel is extremely rich and creamy. It’s almost like oil with how huge and thick the body is. There’s a slight booze on the back end, which makes sense for this beer.
For me, it’s mostly the Papier that comes through, as it’s much like an old ale with its molasses, bourbon, vanilla, oak, caramel. I don’t really get the stout characters of Black Tuesday, although I’ve never had either.
This is clearly one of the best beers I’ve ever had. Up there with the huge amazing bourbon barrel aged stouts. I love this beer.

4.6/5 rDev +3.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5
The beer pours quite still with limited carbonation as you would expect. The color is deep and dark, basically just this side of black. The smell changes with each nose as you get some bourbon, some roast, and some fruit. This beer is basically somewhere in the old ale/barleywine spectrum with hints of the RIS. It would pair incredibly with a cigar and blow right through the smoke. So much flavor. Different with every sip from roast to fruit to toffee all with full richness and dense mouthfeel. A pleasure to drink and worth the price tag for a special occasion.
